Keeping it in the family: Nicolas Baert is the 19-year-old son of Comtoyou Racing owner Jean-Michel Baert.
Different start: Baert’s first foray in circuit racing following a career in karts was in the Spanish F4 Championship certified by the FIA in 2019.
Home joy: Despite his limited experience in touring cars, Baert won only his third TCR Europe race at his home track, Zolder, back in September.
Back to Aragón: Baert’s Spanish F4 programme in 2019 gave him the opportunity to race at MotorLand Aragón, making him one of only a handful of drivers competing at WTCR Race of Spain with experience of the challenging layout in race conditions.
Did you know? Baert joined forces with Comtoyou WTCR team-mates Nathanaël Berthon and Tom Coronel for the 24H Portimão in June. The trio finished second overall.
